Personal Care Polymer

The quaternary amine functional silsesquioxane particles are a universal conditioning and anti-static additive for personal care and cosmetics formulations.  This solid powder can be dispersed easily  into water based formulations, dry powders or plastic packaging. The highly charged surface provides beneficial effects at low loading levels. The particles are non-toxic, non-leaching, non-irritating, biocompatible, environmentally friendly and thermally stable.
